weird SID routing

SID POL4S RNW 05L FIX OVERFLY D053A AT OR ABOVE 760 FIX OVERFLY D053G FIX D182L AT OR ABOVE 4000 FIX D182H 5000 FIX POL 5000

 

Looks as though first fix D053A is before end of runway... try deleting that fix on the LEGS page and allowing D053G to be your first departure fix. If that works, drop a note to Richard at the Navigraph forum as a bug report.

Hi Driver

Yes have exactly the same weird SID route as you. I cut out the first waypoint to get a more direct route and that worked O.K., but why the SID is as it is is a mystery.

POL 4S Climb straight ahead. At not below 757 ALT ( 500 AAL), but not before DER, adjust track onto MCT VOR  R053 (See Note 5). At MCT  D7 turn left to intercept  POL VOR R182 (002º) to POL VOR . Cross POL  D12 at 4000 or above (4.27%). Cross  POL  D8 at 5000 . Cross POL VOR at 5000

Speaking to the PMDG team paul said this,

 

I'm not sure why they opted to write that procedure in that manner but something about the placement of the intial waypoint is incorrect. Here is the actual text for the departure

 

POL 4S Climb straight ahead. At not below 757ALT (500 AAL), but not before DER, adjust track onto MCT VOR R053 (See Note 5). N57, N601, P18, P17/UP17 RWY 05L† At MCT D7 turn left to intercept POL VOR R182 (002º) to POL VOR. Cross POL D 12 at 4000 or above (4.27%). Cross Northbound and for aircraft POL D 8 at 5000 . Cross POL VOR at 5000 . leaving controlled airspace.

 

Here is the text of the SID as written

 

SID POL4S RNW 05L FIX OVERFLY D053A AT OR ABOVE 760 FIX OVERFLY D053G FIX D182L AT OR ABOVE 4000 FIX D182H 5000 FIX POL 5000

 

My assumption is that D0053A is supposed to be DER (Departure End Runway) but the placement is incorrect. The Lat/Lon for that fix would need to be adjusted to match the runway end or just beyond in order for it to be read correctly.

 

 

 

Well technically you could change the coordinates of the waypoint in the SID File if you the proper LAT/LON. If you look in the FSX/PMDG/SID/STAR folder and look up that airport, you will see the waypoint listed there as a LAT/LON fix. If you adjust that it would move the waypoint. It may also be an airport alignment issue for some reason thats causing it to be slightly misplaced but adjusting the LAT/LON should correct that as well
